SELinux: Filesystem relabel

I had an unclean shutdown of the Desktop PC yesterday night. I had to manually ‘fsck’ the filesystem today morning. This might have misplaced some of the SELinux labels. I didn’t know how to relabel  them. As always, Goooooogle to the rescue!!

Simply create a hidden file named autorelabel in /

touch /.autorelabel

Now reboot the system!

There it is! File system relabel will start soon.

Another way is to issue the autorelabel boot option in the GRUB menu prior to booting.
